Dryer has power - we can hear the timer ticking and the light comes on when the door is opened, but when we push the start button nothing happens model # leq9558ko 8 yrs old electric


does the light close when the door is closed??? poosible that the door switch has gone bad. or a bad thermal fuse behind the unit is also a common culprit of this.. its a white thermostat on back of unit behind the panel (-----------------------) approx this long ad white,,

I have an older Maytag D8512 with an electric igniter. When I push the start button, nothing happens. I checked the pilot light and it is off. I used a long matchstick to see if I could start the pilo


there is no pilot light. electric igniter will glow and pull amps allowing gas valve to open. if you do not see igniter glow it is bad or thermal fuse has blown. look for 120 volts at the igniter when running. if voltage found bad igniter, if no voltage trace back to fuse/stats.this assumes dryer is actually running. if drum not turning could be a number of things. door switch, fuse, etc

I have a very old roper dryer (11 yrs), it quit mid cycle. It ticks when I set the timer but nothing happens. The on button quit along time ago but when you shut the door it would start. Today nothing...


You've got an open circuit somewhere in the loop betwixt the start button, the "safety" button actuated by the door, and the motor/heat coils. Trace out those circuits and you'll have that thing running in no time.

Does not turn on at all


If it does nothing usually the lid switch is bad. I have replaced 2 just this week and it fixed both. That is your problem. It is inexpensive and you can fix it yourself. That will fix ya up!
